              My desktop machine is a PPC OS/X mac mini, I can do regression tests on it in the night UK time. I'll copy the keys over and set this up if it's ok?

              Sure.

              If you'd like it to function like the other machines (ie make it available to the core team), the thing to do is create an account called "regression" and copy the keys over from one of the other regression machines. You could optionally also create an account called test and use the same keys. However, since the machine is also your desktop, I can understand that you may not want to do this.

              You'll also need to make the various benchmarks available on the machine.

              Importance of PPC OSX continuing to decline... at this point I think a good case can be made for just removing support for the platform entirely. Would cleanup some of the PPC calling conventions to only have 2 ABIs to support instead of 3.

              In case it wasn't clear. We will continue to support and routinely test 32 and 64 bit ppc on both AIX and Linux. It's only OS X on ppc that I would like to abandon.
